Analysis of first arrivals of P waves from 113 earthquakes in the Dead Sea region and the calculation of a tomographic model indicates anomalous distribution of seismic velocities in the crust and the upper mantle. The seismic tomography model was applied to the lower and intermediate crust and the uppermost mantle there, at depths greater than the detection limits of seismic reflection surveys. At these depths the inversion shows two deep layers, at depths of 10–22 km and 22–32 km. The deeper layer shows average seismic velocity of 7.7 km s−1, and the shallower one 6.5 km...
